It’s goodbye to the Ekka for 2014.
If you didn’t get the opportunity to go then here’s my recap of my favourite free event – the Commonwealth Bank Wrapped in Natural Fibres Fashion Parade. This year was especially good with gorgeous wedding gowns from one of our all-time favourite designers, George Wu, as well as the dreamy creations of Jack Sullivan Bridal, Brides Desire by Wendy Sullivan, Darb Bridal Couture. Guys were equally well catered for with stylish men’s suits by Will Valour, Calibre and Pistols at Dawn.
The mix of accessories, millinery and footwear combined to make a fun and relaxed parade that showcased great designs for all demographics, with colour and energy for all the children, and a touch of panache to satisfy the true fashionista.
An iconic event that captures the integration of the city and country, the parade aims to celebrate Queensland’s agricultural industry and the talent of our local designers.
If this is a glimpse of the Queensland fashion industry I think we have every reason to feel very proud. It also builds the excitement ahead of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane. So there’s more to come…
